The MailOnline reported that the Australian fertility clinic Genea had admitted to using substandard sperm as part of a treatment that gave women little chance of ever falling pregnant.
But the clinic put the blame squarely at the door of Donor Gametes South Africa.
Sydney woman Amy Jones failed to fall pregnant after she paid AU$2500 (R24 635) for the treatment and AU$5000 for vials of sperm from Donor Gametes. She underwent intrauterine insemination (IUI) this year at Genea, which informed her the sperm was to blame as it had not been “fit for purpose”.
The company claimed “quality control” was to blame.
